I haven't really delved too deeply into this tour which many hold in high regard....any DL suggestions...I know boards became more scarce in the 80's but if you have any particular faves, I'd love to know....thanks in advance

I agree with previous poster that the summer tour rocks, check out all three Red Rocks (Wet Rocks ) shows, 7/27/28/& 29, the best Rocks run ever, and the 7/31 and 8/1 shows, some great stuff.

Not a SBD but a gem of an AUD recording, great deliveries of classic DEAD. Scope 04*03*82

There are some gems in spring '82 (4/17-19, 5/21-23) but if you are new to '82 I would move on to the summer tour first. I wasn't too fond of the spring tour until I OD'ed on the summer and fall of '82. And I still constantly find myself going back to '82 as it has definitley become my favorite year. IMHO, between 7/17 and 8/10 were some of the finest GD shows, period. I would start with 8/10 and work backwards. If you are like me, you'll think the China/Riders from this tour were the best they ever played.

Just saw the Bopper's review and I must concur.
8/3, 8/7, and 8/8 are my personal favs, but the whole mid-west summer run is as good as it gets (as well as May 77 of course).
Jer's voice has just the right amount of grit and his guitar playing was at an all time high degree of sophistication.

I've got 4/8/82 playing right now. Thanks for the tip Midnight Sun! TLEO was impressive

Update - Now I'm on Big River. Definite above average version
